Todd Akin uses Rubio-Crist race to fight establishment, and raise money



Email fundraising solicitation from U.S. Sen. candidate Todd Aken:

A few years ago, Party Bosses wanted Marco Rubio gone so that Charlie Crist could sail to the Republican Senate nomination in Florida.

A few days ago, Crist spoke at the Democratic National Convention – where attendees had just adopted a platform supporting taxpayer-funded abortion on demand into the third trimester of pregnancy.

Now, those very same party bosses that pushed political opportunist Charlie Crist want Todd Akin gone from the Missouri Senate race. The Party Bosses have turned their backs on Todd Akin, and are content to let liberal, pro-abortion Claire McCaskill win another term.

Will you stand with Todd today? We are trying to raise $5000 today to show the Party Bosses that it's the people's opinion that matters, not theirs!

Join us today! Can you chip in $5 to help us meet our goal?
